Oz lecturer commits suicide after sex charges


Melbourne’s Victoria University has been rocked by this scandal. Before police could interrogate him he is believed to have taken his life, apparently overdosing on drugs at his home at Footscray.

Police were preparing a brief, including 10 bribery charges, when they contacted the man in early May. They asked him to go to a police station and recommended he take a lawyer. Two days after the call he was found dead. His death and the bribery allegations have shocked colleagues at the university. The man, who is said to have been divorced, had recently suffered financial losses.

It is believed the university uncovered the allegations in December and referred them to police. It is understood the that Asian students themselves were never considered suspects in the investigation, instead being treated as victims.
